Governor Newsom is right: “Big Oil is fleecing you.”

In California, the oil industry’s greed knows no bounds. California refiners have used their control of the market to rip us off at the pump and rake in massive profits, far beyond prior years. Governor Newsom is pushing to cap oil refiners’ windfall profits and send that money back to Californians. Now, our state legislators must pass it.

For decades, the oil industry’s massive profits have funded their disinformation campaigns and powerful lobby to delay climate action. Most recently, they’re using the hard-earned dollars we spend at the pump to fund a ballot measure that would overturn vital protections for California communities living next to their toxic oil wells. Our state legislators must act now to protect California families against profit-hungry polluters.
